Michael Carson is a contemporary American painter. His Impressionistic figural works, often featuring lone women, are set in shallow spaces and rendered with muted, earthy tones. Born in Minneapolis in 1972, he went on to graduate from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1996. Carson has exhibited his art in several galleries in Minneapolis from 2003 to 2006, notably including Jones & Terwilliger Galleries. His work is primarily figurative, the artist says: “I like the fact that the face can be such a subtle subject and one brush stroke can be the difference in the feel of the entire piece. That gives me the ability to work in one subject matter and still find that I learn something new in every painting. ”
The artist has had several solo shows, his artwork can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
